Email Testing

You can create emails and run A/B tests with Mailsoftly’s email testing tool to make sure you’re sending your subscribers high-quality emails.

What is Email Testing?

Email testing allows the viewer to read through your email before sending it out to your subscriber list. In addition, Mailsoftly can preview your email before it is sent out. Testing your emails allows you to observe incorrect or untracked links, fix typos or broken components of the email design, or choose a subject line that offers higher open and interaction rates.

Before sending your subscribers an email, preview it first.

Which parts of my email testing should I be looking out for?

Subject Line

Subject lines are crucial for an email campaign! The subject line is where your recipients immediately decide if they will interact with your message. Catch your recipient's attention by being catchy and sparking their interest or attention; avoid cliches as they may come off as spammy, and ensure you have the correct email. There are many ways to alter your subject line to catch attention – personal touches, display size, font difference, etc.


Quality content makes a huge difference in the quality of your email. Therefore, choosing a few templates is always intelligent; you can see which brings in the highest click rates.

Promotions / Deals

Offering promotions and deals several times a year is not normalized; it is the best way to generate consumer interest. The company could lose money with a popular promotion, while an offer with high interactions could bring significant profit. When creating promotions and deals, there isn't a "one size fits all" running a few tests with different propositions in different segments.


Incorporating images, GIFS, videos, and other media that catch your recipients' attention can increase your email performance. When running your test, start with density and placement and gradually work through image type and color.


Always offer a Call – for – Action! This could be in the form of a button, a hyperlink of text, a QR code, etc. These emails aim to interact with your website and incorporate vital call-to-action phrases, so you push the reader to proceed to your website.

Time Frame

Run your tests on different days at different times; many things can impact the opening rate, such as holidays, unexpected events, or ISP slowdowns.

By testing your email before you send it, you can save time and increase income.
